We become so wrapped up in politics and illness and all the bad news, we completely forget the work that is being done in other parts of the world to bring the the message of Christ to the lost. Great message and great lesson.
Long ago I heard a preacher say, "Many wish to serve the Lord, but they want to serve the Lord in an advisory capacity. That is a true statement. You can tell who that person is because they say a lot about what needs to be done but they do very little AND their personal lives never change. To serve the Master, one needs to serve completely.
So much emphasis is placed on worship in our churches that we forget about holiness. Worship is easy and emotional. Holiness requires much more from us and is something we should show the world everyday. It is the splendor of holiness.
We are facing some real hard times, but week after week people come into this church with smiles and joy. You wouldn't know that the world was in such a mess. All joy comes from Him and all praise goes back to Him. If your church does not have that joy, it is a church in trouble.
Are we, as Christians, losing our way? Why is the Lord allowing all this to happen?/ Well, He told us that it would happen, but He also gave us the the way through. Contentment isn't coming. Contentment is here.
